    Default Not a Tesla but I love it.

    While the $$$$ rotomolded dog crates are being shipped I’ve been driving around in our newest addition ; Groom Service Pet Taxi - A Ford Transit Connect XL.

    I have to say, it really drives nice and smooth with exceptional gas mileage and well equipped for $20k. To be honest, maybe because its new, or maybe because I like driving advertising but I kinda prefer driving it to our Jeep Compass.

    To be honest it makes more sense than the Jeep, it has way more cargo capacity for dogs and beach stuff, or even a Costco run. Throw a nice double mattress in the 4X7 cargo bed and you have a nice little camper. If I wasn’t 100% set on the Tesla after our lease is up I would totaly get another one of these.

    i like them too joe
    they are a bit limited interior wise compared to other minivans
    but as a work van they’re pretty cool
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I have known a few people who run ordinary Transits,as opposed to Connects,as their sole vehicle.I also know a couple of people who own Volkswagen Caddys for their versatility.Just wait till Tesla learn how to build small vans!

    well yeah I would hope that they'd have that thing pretty well refined. What is it, the 27th-generation of the Transit now?

    I have thought of turning one into a small camper van.

    I bought a transit custom a year ago...its a better gt than the car with gt written on it. I much prefer using it for the 300 km trip we regularly do now.

    Joe, maybe the young woman who built TRUCKLA can build you a VANLA?

    Looked into them before purchasing my current work truck, lots of upside but being able to haul a sheet of plywood was the deal breaker.
